12 Days of Gift-mas Blog Hop: Day 3

I'm SO excited to be a part of this fabulous group of teacher-bloggers. I hope you were able to check out Addie Education's post for Day 2!  It's not too late to join her giveaway, even if you did miss out on the holiday freebie!

Where ELSE would you expect to find me nestled for this fantastic teacher collaboration? C'est ça, exactement!  Three French Hens coming your way....


I have a brand new holiday-themed French product which I'm really proud of, and I'm offering it as my holiday gift to you. This challenging communication chain activity will allow your students to practice describing Christmas vocabulary old and new.


J'ai... qui a... Christmas French activity



It's free today only! Download your copy now through this Google Drive link or by clicking the product image. After midnight on the 4th of December, if you're still interested, you'll have to visit my TPT or TN store to buy a copy instead!

And so now, on with the other holiday goodies!  You can download a few other holiday-themed freebies from my store as well, if you haven't already. I have a set of four printable bookmarks which you can gift to your students, two puzzles and a huge multi-option winter-themed bingo package complete with calling cards, word wall cards and enough unique combinations for even your biggest class!

      

         


Last but not least, my first Rafflecopter giveaway is down below! One lucky teacher will win $25 worth of products from my store! They could be for your own use, or what a fabulous thing to pass along to a new French teacher on your list! Remember I WILL need to collect an email address from the winner, within 48 hours of the December 13 end of day contest closing!
(Since I'm still trying to keep up with the "big girls & boys" in this blog hop, I won't make you cash it all in at once... you are allowed to wait & see what I add to the store over the coming months!)

I hope you enjoy my holiday gifts to you, and please remember to visit the other middle & high school bloggers throughout the 12 Days of Gift-mas! Tomorrow, head over to Mrs. Orman's Classroom to see what she has to share with our middle and high school friends!

    1. It is a lot of fun, isn't it? Even the bigger kids that I teach are very excited for the holidays... who doesn't love food & the chance to sleep in? :-)

  3. My favourite part of the holiday season is teaching the students a new French Christmas carol. They are so unsure of themselves the first time they hear the carol and after a few days of practice, they are singing in the hallways!

    1. Fabulous! Helping them to develop confidence is so key!

      I wish I did more singing in my classes, but my voice is so horrible... I guess my encouragement could be that they need to sing loudly enough to drown me out! :-)

  4. I love teaching the various holidays around the world. Many students aren't familiar with other holidays that they just have no idea what is out there, so I love teaching it!

    1. That sounds like a lot of fun, and a great idea for multi-ethnic schools!

  8. I used to love teaching my middle school students about how they celebrate Christmas and New Years in France, and in Quebec. They enjoyed learning about the similarities and differences. We also used to learn a lot of Christmas Carols in French, and go around the school caroling the day before break. The students loved it! I also don't have an amazing voice....but the students with good voices would usually help out ;)

    1. By the way...I love it when finals are done & I get the chance to talk to the students before they leave for break. The stress of taking the test is done and it's nice to just catch up on their lives. I don't think we ever get enough time to just let students relax and talk to us enough. That's kind of dorky, but it really is my favorite time. (They are also much nicer after the test, knowing they won't have homework! haha)

    2. That's true! It is nice to just have time to chat. Since I'm in a middle school & not a high school now, at least we have the home room time while students are arriving to chat a little, but it is too short to connect with everyone.

  10. Great giveaway! Hmmm my favourite thing about holidays at school... how relaxed the kids are...just kidding. I would have to say the Christmas concert and watching all the little ones in their pretty dresses.

  11. My favourite part of the holiday season at school is singing carols and making crafts together.

  12. I start singing carols in my car & other "private" places before Halloween, so I'm with you on that one. I'm wondering how my middle schoolers would relate to some crafts this year.
